Property Buying Tips

  • Book an Inspection visit to Portugal!

    Quite simply, it is the most effective and informative way of viewing property Overseas.
    There is only so much that we can tell you about the fantastic properties that lie scattered all along the stunning coastlines of Portugal and Spain, you need to see a property, and get a feel for the location in order to make the right decision on which property to buy. The best way in which to do this is on one of our specially subsidized Property Inspection Trips. These are tailored specifically to your individual requirements, and you are in the safe hands of a local expert who has all the knowledge and experience you need to get the full picture. The inspection is a two, three or four day information and viewing trip where you will see property for sale within your price range, in short, you tell us your dream, and we will find it for you! INSPECTION TRIPS FROM £149 PER PERSON

  • Find a Home to Buy

    Finding a property, especially in a foreign country, can be a daunting task. You can spend months looking in estate agents windows and trawling the internet. Giving a specific list of your requirements, and the type of lifestyle you want to have, to a local expert can pass all the stress and responsibility on to someone else so you can just sit back and do the choosing!

  • Hire an Agent

    An agent can send you property links that meet your requirements and your budget. This can save you valuable time scrolling through hundreds of unsuitable properties on numerous online portal websites. Agents have access to the majority of properties for sale on the market as a whole, not just the ones they advertise on their own websites. They also know the areas well so can tailor their choices specifically for you.

  • Viewing properties

    Here are some useful tips to keep in mind when looking for the house of your dreams:

    Once your decision to buy is made, and your finances are in place, it's time to find that property of your dreams. Always make sure that, if you and your partner are buying together, you both view every property. Once you have a shortlist, do a second, or even third viewing; you'll be amazed what you missed the first time!

  • Foreigners to bring boost to Portugal's property market

    Home ownership in Portugal is now especially appealing to wealthy foreigners thanks to the introduction of a new law making it possible for non-EU citizens to get residency there through investing in property.

    The new immigration law, dubbed the “Golden passport”, came into effect this month (October) and enables citizens of countries outside of the European Union to obtain Portuguese residency through property ownership, so long as the minimum acquisition value is €500,000 (around £403K or $645K).
